7600 kms, 11 months... and no rattles on its own.. got 2-3 rattles from dashboard/A-pillar sometime back due to faulty wiring of reverse sensors system, which were promptly fixed, but now, one resurfaced again in the right A-pillar.... thinking of stuffing cotton inside the plastic panels

When did the SX4 come in the ZDi trim? You mean ZXi, don't you?

I hear wind noise at speeds greater than 60 kmph, but only when I sit at the rear. I drove the test car as well and it had the same problem!

No rattle at 13K. A small problem with front suspension when I travelled a lot on bad roads. But tightening the main suspension nuts, set it right. Have'nt got it back.

There are feature issues on SX4 - A Pillars, lack of storage space inside the cabin, bad feature set on the audio etc., But quality - handling and rattling are not part of it. The luggage compartment door is also fine.

Have not observed bad NVH, have seen coarseness get into engine at higher rpms (4K+), but I do not drive often at 4K+, so I've not really been affected at that. Also I've been able to achieve pretty high speeds (usually do about 100+ on highways and 140 on NICE) and I still hear my music fine at the same volume I have at 60.

Panel gaps, have'nt seen them.

Tyres could have been better. Friend has bridgestone on SX4, and he's got better grip than me.

Have heard one more person (other than Amit in TBHP) talk of problems, but his problems got set right after first service.

A OT on polls: How do we get every SX4 owner on TBHP to poll on this? W/o that, it might be incomplete. Having said that, we've now crossed the magic figure of 30, where a normal distribution becomes statistically significant, assuming randomness in selection of the samples.

I agree that there were other points raised in your thread. But, rattles was something that can be easily polled (you either have a rattle or you don't - no ambiguity there) and based on the results, something we could come to a conclusion about. Hence restricted this poll to rattles only.

Yep, made it public, because I wanted people to vote based on the experience with their own car.

My SX4 is 10 months old and has driven arnd for 7k+ kms. I have a minor rattle in the glove compartment area and my driver seat has small squeaks. Planning to drive down to the dealer to see if these can be recitified. Its pretty annoying when I drive through pathetic roads. The reason for this being pathetic roads I drive through. I guess I should I have been more gentle. No roads for 25% of my commute.

Cheers!
